The NFL preseason officially kicked off last week with the Hall of Fame game, but Week 1 of the preseason truly begins Thursday with 24 teams in action, including the Washington Redskins taking on the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium.

It’s the first time the Patriots will play a competitive game since they lost in heartbreaking fashion to the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LII last February.
